cain and rubio on the republican side. and durbin and schumer and others on the democratic side. they are really making progress. the president is giving a speech on tuesday with outlines. the question now is, is he going to send legislation up? that is still to be determined. and he just met with the hispanic caucus and with the senators in the last couple of days. the other thing is guns. and despite all of the hints from the white house that they are not backing off of the assault weapon ban, most people i have been talking to in recent days, inside the white house and out, agree that that is really going to be the biggest lift. but if they can get the magazines and the background checks and something on mental health, they think there is something that can be done there. >> senator demint, part of the calculation for republicans is whe where do they push, where do they fight. this is part of the self-examination of the party. bobby jindal spoke out, was outspoken on thursday, talking to republicans. here's part of what he said. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. it's t
from new jersey or senator durbin. and for democrats the challenge is, are they willing to give up a very useful political bludgeon with which to hit republicans in order to get a deal done? because once both parties -- if both parties embrace this, it's a political tool that in some cases, in many cases, is off the table for democrats. >> sure. it shows a compromise. that does help the future of the republican party. but while we talk about that, let's talk about the future of the democratic party. as americans we might have already seen it last night on "60 minutes." take a look. >> i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve. no, no. >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and this is taking place. >> you know, steve, i got to tell you, the -- you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> all right. so we're incorrigible. but they agreed to sit down to this inte
ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his pl
, these senators, these include some of the biggest players on the democratic side. senator schumer, senator durbin, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sad
cain, marco rubio, jeff flake, lindsey graham, the democrats, chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael benn bennet, robert menendez. probably the most controversial part will be all of these folks here in this country illegally under this proposal, should it pass, would not be asked to leave the country. they would have a path to citizenship, a path to being legal and that, of course, the devil is going to be in the details on this. but that is going to be the test, whether conservative republicans who have been against this for a long time, whether they can sign on to it. >> we'll get a chance to listen to what the president has to say on this, as i mentioned, tomorrow in las vegas. chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> you got it. >>> let's check in with natalie morales with the days top stories. >> good morning, savannah and matt. >>> violence raging on the streets of cairo for the fifth straight day this morning. eamon . >> reporter: clashes taking place between protesters and police, as you mention ed, for the fifth straight day. all weekend long, intense fighting in the city of a
, one woman. thank you, illinois and senator durbin for the statue of francis willard, though i feel obligated to note that she was born in rochester, new york. thankfully, she will soon have company when rosa parks completes her journey from the back of the bus to the front of statuary hall later this year. [ applause ] now well, look around and remember the men and women who helped define our nation. they, like us, face obstacles, and they, like us, worked hard to move this country forward. here in this hall four presidents took the oath of office. here abraham lincoln served his single term in congress and john quincy adams, the only former president to return to serve in the house, spoke out against slavery. today we also remember an event that took place outside this building, but reverberated within. this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reverend martin luther king jr.'s march on washington which spurred passage of the historic civil rights laws. we're honored to have with us a colleague congressman john lewis, who was a speaker at that historic march. congressman lewis's
